Latvia Adoption Notice – Required Follow-Up Reports.
By on April 6th, 2011

The US Department of State is asking families who have adopted from Latvia to follow post adoption reporting requirements. Latvian law requires that two post-adoption reports be submitted: one after the first year following the adoption and one after the second year. The reports should be conducted by the adoptive family’s adoption agency.

The intercountry adoption process requires compliance with the laws of both the United States and the child’s country of origin. While the United States cannot enforce the laws of another country, in order for a strong country-to-country partnership on adoption matters to continue, families and agencies should respect the adoption laws of the child’s country of origin.

We strongly encourage agencies to comply with Latvian post-adoption reporting requirements and to submit reports on time.

All agencies operating in Latvia have been notified of this requirement. Compliance will help ensure that Latvia’s history of positive experiences with American adoptive families continues.
